Hon Okonobo Removed as Edo State Speaker For Attending Son's Grad ......Hon Adjoto is the New Speaker

The Speaker , Edo State House of Assembly, Hon Justin Okonobo, has been impeached. He has since been replaced with Hon Kabiru Adjoto.

Apart from being accused of awarding contracts without following due process, part of his alleged offence according to the opposition, is the fact that he attended
his son’s graduation in the US, bringing activities of the State House of Assembly to a halt.

They also alleged his wife used his official vehicles and she allegedly tried influencing certain decisions taken by the lawmakers.
It is being reported that 16 members of the house pushed for his impeachment but the number allegedly increased to 19 after 3 members joined the opposition.

Hon Justin Okonobo in response, rejected his impeachment. He alleged that only 11 members of the house where present during the impeachment process and not all voted. According to him, the exercise is illegal and he is said to have ordered the impeachment of all those involved.

 Thugs loyal to the new speaker were sighted at the premises……trying to assert and show who the new boss is.
